A local Orthodox priest I know just experienced the death of one of his sons to suicide. From what I learned, he was struggling with despair and depression lately and no one was able to successfully get him out of it. I never met him, but if he was anything like his parents, I'm sure he was an exceptional man. Please pray for the repose of his soul and that the Lord will grant comfort to his family. Thank you.

In Christ,
Andrew

may God, who brings peace beyond what we can understand, and comfort more than we can imagine, bring peace and grace to this family at this very hard time.
